Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Luca pecorini" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Sicily, Italy. Italian Lavazza espressos compliment selections of house made desserts (Dolci).

    Although it was close to closing time, the staff let us order everything we wanted and ensured that the service was attentive at all times. The carpaccio and caponata were excellent - and the Sicilian wine selection was a very nice addition.

    Lovely service…and genuinely nice and interested. It is a beautiful restaurant especially upstairs. Loves the salad though there was almost no feta cheese. It was dressed perfectly. The risotto was excellent too. My husband enjoyed the bolognese though nothing special for the cost. The issue was the pomodoro. The pasta was cooked perfectly and it had a nice flavor though too much garlic for my taste and not listed in the ingredient. There was way too much olive oil and the pasta was swimming in it. The tiramisu was excellent too. .

    For the sophisticated palate; not your Sicilian peasant fare. Prices are really high or have I been too sheltered from restaurant inflation due to COVID?

    Gabriel is a star. The carbonara looked so good in every picture and I was looking forward to it for weeks, but it was very underwhelming—truffles, unfortunately, didn’t save it. It didn’t stay creamy; the sauced seized up and congealed. Apps were delightful, but another tomato or two would have helped made the caprese more enjoyable. The wife loved the carpaccio. Also, for someone with italian heritage, I’ve never had focaccia that soft. So good.

    Service was very good. Not too bust at 1:30 on a Monday. Set menu was delish good amount of food and they cooked the foie gras perfectly. I would go back again. Plus they give 15% to locals.

    The food was delicious, but way overpriced. I got spaghetti (which came with nothing else) for $26, and it was such a small portion I was still hungry when done. My husband and son were both hungry after eating their meals, as well.

    We had a reservation , the table was set in advance and we were seated promptly, food was very good, my wife and I had Pasta Seafood Pecsatore for the main course, it was pretty good, so were the appetizers, waiters were courteous and accommodating, the only wish we had that restaurant would enforce dress code, seeing people in flip~flops was appalling. But overall the place stands out and we would definitely recommend Taormina.

    Food and service were great as always. We were seated outside, which would be great if there wasn’t a neighboring business that has a very strong maple syrup smell that is overpowering. On next visit will request not to be seated outside as the smell was off putting and made for an unpleasant dinning experience. Taoromina is great but they should speak to their neighboring business about the smell issue.
